Commonly known for her collaboration with industry heavyweights and close friends Flight Facilities, (with whom she has toured Europe and the US), George Maple (aka Jess) is speaking no Foreign Language in 2013. Recently partnering with Flume
(sorry, who is that?) on his internationally acclaimed debut LP, Maple lent her vocals and songwriting talents on the co-written track ‘Bring You Down.’
Stepping out on her own last year with the international release of her first solo track ‘Uphill’, harmony-driven, dreamy and coupled with her savvy self-penned lyrics, the release saw George Maple gain international attention in her own right from the likes of The Guardian, RCRD LBL and Hunger TV.
Her anticipated second single ‘Fixed,’ presents a moodier offering. The track, steeped in an atmospheric bassline, draws on Maple’s bluesy roots in a fresh and provocative way. Remixes from Australian-based up-and-comer Moonbase Commander and London duo Maribou State, whose Crookers remix reached #1 on Hype Machine, sees ‘Fixed’ celebrate George Maple’s diversity as an emerging Australian artist.
Currently spending time in the studio with the likes of Bondax, Two Inch Punch, Juk Juk, Royce Wood Junior and Snakehips, Maple is recording new material in London, making us Australians proud to call her our own. Watch this face/space!
